Well, if you count the tambourine, it is four parts, otherwise three... :)I haven't been very active since I signed up for this site. But I thought this little ditty would be a nice footnote to the…Continue

Romantic piano concerto in one mvmt, with some pop elements

Someone said it was OK to post another piece already, so I'm doing that. This recording features very raw midi (I'm (as yet) on Linux with no good tools), and (referring to another discussion here)…Continue

"The SID is a tricky instrument because it is so bloody limited. I don't know much about music or composing, but I have worked with SID quite a bit. One trick I learned is using voices to cover more than one line. In Anticowboy, the drum beat…"

Bouncy Anticowboy

Telegraph stations go warm from coast to coast with warnings about a certain wanted murderer, dead or alive. Meanwhile, on the prairie, our hero is galloping furiously into unknown territory...The piece has a rather simple structure. Theme A is presented twice. Then comes theme B. Then A is combined with B, in the same register, and with the same instrument. The composition is closed with theme C ("Hero theme"), on the same harmonic pattern as previous themes. I did not attempt to combine C…See More

Well, I hesitate to post this because it is so minimalist, but it was requested in another thread.It was loosely inspired by Yoshed's track "We were elephants"Thread here: http://composersforum.ning.com/forum/topics/we-were-elephantsI say loosely inspired, because the SID chip can only do a maximum of three notes at a time, and I had to use two of those three voices in order to get the bass line to sound…See More

"I don't want to hijack the thread, so I will post it in a new thread then. Thank you for the interest!"

"You're right - 3.5 - because the tambourine is never picked up by the other instruments :-) Nice."

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Yoshed's discussion We were elephants
"Each new chord makes you go wow... and still it is mostly notes from the same scale, but the right notes and chords, according to the appropriate scheme used here... Nice. Of course the mixing also contributes a big deal to the overall impression.…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Chitpong Kittinaradorn's discussion Just to join a fugue craze here: Fugue in C major
"I liked this piece a lot. Also, I think it is definitely possible to play on a real piano, although I personally would have to slow down the tempo considerably to do that... I liked the small, maybe a bit jazzy colourings you did on the basic…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Shanty-Fugue in 3.5 parts
"Yeah, for people like us who are not Bach, fugues can turn into endless improvement projects.  At least, that's what I find in my own fugues.  At some point you just gotta draw the line between "I really wanna fix Yet Another…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Shanty-Fugue in 3.5 parts
"Thank you. Yeah, I wanted to extend after the first total inverted entry in E minor (bars 37-40), maybe going to A minor, but I couldn't work it out harmonically. For more false and true entries without prolonging the piece, as you suggested…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Romantic piano concerto in one mvmt, with some pop elements
"Finally got round to this again. I like it!! I think this has improved from the previous version that I heard.  I like the climactic arpeggios you added at N and the chords in mm.125-139, as well as the additional flourishes in the cadenza.…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Roberto Cipollina's discussion Romanza for bassoon and vibraphone, Roberto Cipollina
"This was quite a funny idea to me, in a positive way. Nice combination of instruments, and as I understand what you write on your blog about this piece, you did sort of whatever you felt like, with 3 very different sections and a sudden unexpected…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Romantic piano concerto in one mvmt, with some pop elements
"Here is a very unprofessionally made "live recording" (acoustic piano + midi strings). It's complete with coughs and a mess up by the pianist (me) during the climax. But should still give some better idea of the desired sound than the…"

"The sound file in the opening post has been updated. The low and slow strings are now using another soundfont. It's not production ready audio in any way, but should be somewhat easier on your ears."

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to David Lilly's discussion Sonatina No. 1 "Strange People & Where They Hide"
"Nice simple mood piece with good rendition. It might be my classical ears, and I don't know, maybe you're going for some form of "minimalism" here, but to me the three movements are _too_ similar, in tempo, key, and themes. One…"

Lars Johan Martin Nilsson replied to Lars Johan Martin Nilsson's discussion Romantic piano concerto in one mvmt, with some pop elements
"The files in the opening post have been updated with today's latest version. Significant changes: Gentle piano participation in measures 35-38. Slightly more virtuosity/emphasis in piano from measures 125 onwards. More virtuosity in the solo…"

"I must first say I'm happy to be on the same forum as composers of such professionalism as this shows. It was interesting to get a view of some of your theoretical thought processes in one of the posts above. I hope I will be able to understand…"
